A Brain Shunt consists of a small tube that Neurosurgeons insert into the skull to relieve excess pressure and Cerebrospinal fluid. Used to treat life threatening conditions such as Hydrocephalus, during which the brain produces an excess of Cerebrospinal Fluid. The excess fluids put intense pressure on the interior of the brain, causing symptoms such as memory loss, muscle instability, and blurred vision . A Brain Shunt gives excess Cerebrospinal Fluid a place to go, saving the brain by relieving pressure.
